HyDeal has picked engineering, procurement and also construction (EPC) partners to deliver the preliminary phases of a multi-GW solar-connected electrolyser project in Spain.

VINCI Construction, Tecnicas Reunidas, PowerChina Guizhou Engineering will carry out the basic design phase of the Europe's biggest integrated renewable hydrogen center, HyDeal Espana.

They will be sustained by TSK, as owner's designer.

HyDeal Espana will aim to deliver affordable renewable hydrogen to an industrial complex in Asturias from centers based in northern Spain.

The total mounted capacity is expected to reach 9.5 GW of solar power and also 7.4 GW of electrolyser capacity.

Production is targeted to begin by the end of 2025, to create concerning 150,000 tonnes of renewable hydrogen each year from 2026 and also reach 330,000 tonnes in 2030.

VINCI Construction (in cooperation with Cobra IS, a VINCI Group business), Tecnicas Reunidas, as well as PowerChina Guizhou Engineering will certainly generate the technical design, style as well as supply chain of the first HyDeal Espana plants.

The 3 business will certainly work to create the highest possible performance as well as most budget-friendly solar-to-hydrogen systems to create HyDeal Espana's renewable hydrogen on the basis of pre-agreed EPC cost targets

Revealed in February 2022, HyDeal Espana is a commercial joint-venture developed by ArcelorMittal, Enagas, Grupo Fertiberia and DH2 Energy.

ArcelorMittal and also Grupo Fertiberia have actually revealed their objective to agreement, together with various other key offtakers, the supply of 6.6 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen over two decades.

The 3 EPCs will certainly provide their preliminary technical as well as economic proposals in the course of the year.

Following this basic design phase, HyDeal Espana will certainly validate the final EPC business responsible for carrying out the design engineering project (FEED) as well as subsequent project execution (EPC).

Throughout the subsequent design engineering and also project execution phases, the chosen EPC business will operate in close cooperation with TSK to complete the advancement and also construction of HyDeal Espana's renewable hydrogen production sites.

They will certainly team up with vendors, specifically electrolyser manufacturers, for safeguarding GW-scale of affordable equipment supply and promoting Europe-based market.

Thierry Lepercq, executive chairman of the joint venture as well as speaker for HyDeal Ambition, said: "We are proud to be sustained by 4 world-class EPC firms which share our goal to deliver mass-scale competitive green hydrogen in a record time.
